AGOGO - black orb panel

Stream of Gates - Chained Vactrol LPGs

AGOGÔ is an octal analogue vactrol-based low pass gate and mixer in a cascade configuration.
Each one of its inputs, CVs and outputs are normalized and buffered to the next one: it can be used as a multiplier and a mixer for both audio and CV.

One way to imagine AGOGÔ is to use water and streams.
In the module we have three rivers:
"I" - inputs
"V" - CVs and modulations and
"O" - outputs

"I" is flowing from top to bottom. An input inserted in the first socket will be
buffered and it will flow unaltered in the next. If a cable is inserted, the connection
will be interrupted.

"V" works in the same way but there is some latency in the interruption due to its
chained vactrol configuration. This means that with a single control voltage you can
open all the gates simultaneously.
Combining the features of both "I" and "V" you can - for example - control a single
signal with 8 different CVs or 8 different sources with the same CV. The streams can
be interrupted in any point, this means that all the LPGs can be used individually or
in pair for stereo effects or send/return divisions.

The last stream, "O" represents the end of the flow, the river mouth. It acts as an
active mixer, letting you mix 8 or more signals. As in the other streams, the
connection can be interrupted in any given point to create sub mixes or individual

More units can be chained together thanks to headers on the back. This chained
configuration will add saturation to the final out.
